    The Miscanti and Miñiques Lagoons are located approximately 110 kilometers southeast of San Pedro de Atacama, in the Socaire commune. They were formed due to volcanic activity in the area. The Miscanti Lagoon is the largest and is characterized by its intense turquoise color, surrounded by imposing mountains and volcanoes.
